MEASURING THE INFINITE Of all the sciences, astronomy, probably, is the Most impressive and awe-inspiring The space within the confines of the solar system tÂ. whioh earth is part, and the outermost known membef of which is nearly 3,000,000,000 miles from the oentre, is but a drop in the ocean of space. W. think of and measure distances on earth in terms of an inch or a yard or a mile. The smallest yard-stict, so to speak, with which the astro- nomer measures distance in the universe is the semi-diameter of the earth's orbit, roughly speaking, 93,000,000 miles. Such figures are of very little use to the ordinary person, but they may serve, says the Pirtorial Magazine, to gin some notion of the grandeur of that human intel- lect which can unravel and systematise the mys- teries of the stars
